Robin has been working in Jewish Early Childhood Education for more than 25 years. She believes that the path to life-long Jewish learning begins with a young child’s footsteps into a quality Jewish early childhood program. A welcoming, cooperative environment between a child’s home and school create strong roots into the early childhood program and the synagogue community.

Training and Education

B.S. degree in Education from Mansfield University in PA.

Currently pursuing a Master’s degree in Jewish Early Childhood Education at Gratz College in Philadelphia.

Robin has worked as a preschool director at Bet Yeladim in Columbia, MD, Temple Emanuel in Baltimore, MD and Congregation Beth Or in Maple Glen, PA.

Temple Role/Responsibilities

Robin Adelman is excited to be the founding director of the new Shir Hadash Early Childhood Center at Congregation in Los Gatos.

Background/Personal

Her most rewarding experience was a few summers ago when she was able to travel to Israel with a group of Jewish early childhood professionals from the Philadelphia area. They were able to visit early childhood schools and discover the similarities and differences to schools in the U.S.

Robin has 2 adult children: a son who lives in Philadelphia, PA, and a daughter in Culver City, CA. A life-long resident of the East Coast, she is looking forward to her new adventures in California, better weather, and a chance to see her daughter a little more often.
